The final trailer has been released for upcoming horror-slasher threequel Halloween Kills, the next chapter of Michael Myers’ killing spree.
The film continues on the same night that we left Laurie Strode (Jamie Lee Curtis), her daughter Karen (Judy Greer), and granddaughter Allyson (Andi Matichak) on in 2018’s Halloween, with Myers left in a burning house. Yeah, turns out he didn’t die, and now he’s killing those that survived his first attack – back in 1978’s original. Anthony Michael Hall is on board as a grown-up Tommy Doyle, Kyle Richards returns as Lindsey Wallace, and Nancy Stephens reprises her role as Dr. Loomis’ former assistant, Marion Chambers.
Strode and company go after him with a plan to end it for once and for all. “Evil dies tonight,” reads the synopsis below… but, Halloween Ends is lined up for release next year, so there’s that.
Halloween (2018) director David Gordon Green remains at the helm for this chapter and is also directing Halloween Ends, fulfilling a planned trilogy. Also starring Will Patton and Thomas Mann, Halloween Kills will be in US cinemas & US streaming service Peacock on October 15th and Australian cinemas on October 28th.

Minutes after Laurie Strode (Curtis) her daughter Karen (Judy Greer) and granddaughter Allyson (Andi Matichak) left masked monster Michael Myers caged and burning in Laurie’s basement, Laurie is rushed to the hospital with life threatening injuries, believing she finally killed her lifelong tormentor.
